What is Active Nation Day?

Active Nation Day is a movement created in 2012 by Lorna Jane to inspire women, their families, communities, cities and the world to live a more Active Life!

Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980, with 39% of the adult population now overweight and 1.9 billion of the world’s population not getting sufficient exercise. It’s time to make a change and the change starts with you!

On September 27 2015, we’ll be hosting events all over the world to encourage women to mark their commitment to Active Living by getting out and moving their bodies. We think there should be a day dedicated to Active Living – a day where people are asked to consider putting their health and fitness first – resetting their commitment and inspiring others to do the same.

LJ piece of the month!

Lara Sports Bra

Hey there loyal readers! I hope you had an amazing weekend full of laughs, joy, and sweat. This week was put into perspective in the Tone it Up community and it made me appreciate my friends and family more than ever. On Friday, the Grit fam and some of my #tiusisters, came together for a happy hour. We enjoyed a few drinks at The Rustic and caught up on life. I am so thankful for this community in Dallas, because it is to welcoming. If you come to the studio, be sure to introduce yourself!

Today I’m starting a new blog series dedicated to my favorite Lorna Jane active living gear! I will take you through my collection of LJ pieces for fitness and leisure. I am one of those girls that only purchases work clothes every couple of years. I would rather spend my money on fitness and leisure clothing. As crazy as it sounds, I just need that extra motivation to feel my best while I’m working out. When you have a fun outfit to put on, you are much more likely to push harder in your workout, feel good doing it, and enjoy yourself! Lorna Jane can be found at TJ Maxx, but I shop at my local store in the West Village. I love supporting my local boutiques when I can. Their staff is so friendly, and they have many fun and free events at their Active Living Room. Go check it out.

This month’s piece is the Lara Sports Bra. As soon as this item came out, I had my eye on it-that mesh!!! I can’t get enough of mesh. Dallas is a hot city, I need everything to breath! As a fitness instructor, I am part of the Active Ellite group of women that Lorna Jane gives a nice discount to. To sign up, bring your certification into any store and they will sign you up! (This goes for most athletic apparel stores, just ask =) I love how versatile this crop top is, you can throw a vest over it and wear it out to brunch or a girls day after your workout. The back is killer! Show off those muscles girls. My favorite aspect of LJ clothing is they really flatter women! The fabrics are incredibly durable and soft, and they have removable padding for girls who tend to want a more feminine looking top. I wear this top to our signature Powerbelle class at Dallas Grit Fitness. It lets me move, sweat, and turn every which way for a total body workout. As always, be sure to wash your LJ items separate and hang dry only. They will last much longer. Enjoy!
